So I need a portable device and we've decide to go the tablet route instead of a cheap laptop.

My uses for it are to remote into my desktop and monitor the hardware stats while I'm gaming, Web browser for this site, Netflix and the occasional tweaking.

Her uses are to type word documents and articles and Netflix

I can't decide between the 7 or the 10" nexus so what are your guys thoughts

I can't comment on how the Nexus works, as I have a GTab2.  However, I prefer the 7" for the portability and ease of use.  The GF has an Ipad and think it's just too big.  If I need to do any actual "computer" type stuff, I just use my laptop.

I don't have a nexus but I do have an off brand 7" tablet. In my opinion 7 is too small to be a huge increase from my bionic and its to big to just toss in a pocket and take where ever.

So for me at least I have decided when I upgrade I will go with something in the 10in range.
Still trying to decide if I want android or a surface pro type device. On a big screen I'm not too thrilled with android, I want to load desktop sites and would want my plugins I use and android browsers aren't there yet.

Just my opinion, also I'm broke so I'm not buying anything. But I still want one :p

I prefer Paranoid Android on my N7. Gives me TOTAL control of the Tablet properties (and this is a tablet right?). That's my thoughts though. If you want to check out PA,

I'm on the same boat. Not sure if I want the Nexus 7 or Nexus 10. I already have a droid razr and a 14" laptop so I think the 7 would be a nice addition but I'm afraid I won't really use it because I have my phone for portability and I don't wanna pay $500 for the 10.
